Great Transatlantic Cruise
Embarkation went quickly. Our cabin steward was very friendly and efficient. Always had our room cleaned before we returned from our breakfast and morning activities.
I used the fitness room every sea day and there were several people using the machines, but was never crowded and I did not ever have to wait to use a machine. My wife had 3 massages and loved every one.
The food in the dining rooms and buffets were consistently average, and the waiters were terrific. This group of waiters are the best that we have ever had. They were always happy and hustling.
The shows were the standard shows, fun to watch. The entertainment staff was also great. They were all very talented, very good at leading activities, worked well together and communicated well. Enjoyed the line dancing, and especially enjoyed the singing show Mark put on one night.
We met several other couples and enjoyed More 95% of them. There were only a few couples that started out their conversation by asking us how many cruises we had been on, or what color was our ship card and only one person who was hawking his book.
Glascow was our 2nd port. Lots of fun and the locals were so friendly. Wish we had more time there. The Glascow Cathedral was super - make sure you see this.
Our next stop was Qaqortoq Greenland. We were so lucky that the weather was warm and sunny all day. Went for a hike up the hills behind the town, and then thoroughly enjoyed our walk around this small town, enjoying the locals, who had all come outside to enjoy this sunny day. Listened to the church choir, a singer in the square, a kayak demonstartion and seeing the very beautiful seal skin jackets on a few of the locals
All-in-all this was a fun cruise with lots of really interesting people. Less
